Learning Goal: I’m working on a social science multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Last week you worked on developing your area of focus based on an existing problem or challenge in early childhood education that you would like to change or improve. This week you will gain deeper insight into your area of focus by reviewing and evaluating literature related to your area of focus.
For this assignment, you will utilize appropriate databases and digital tools to identify two academic sources relevant to your action research area of focus. You will evaluate each source for research timeliness, relevancy, authority, accuracy, and purpose. You will identify, evaluate, review, and summarize these two relevant scholarly, credible, or peer-reviewed articles to inform your own action research proposal. The purpose of this assignment is to help you understand what others in the field have done to improve the same or similar challenges that you are interested in improving. Articles must be current, meaning each article must have been published in the past five years. For more information, watch the ECE660 Week 2 video Links to an external site.below.
To prepare for this discussion, review the following resources as needed:
Use the UAGC Library or appropriate digital research tools (e.g., Google Scholar) to locate scholarly, credible, or peer-reviewed sources for this assignment. Remember, not all sources and articles in the UAGC Library are scholarly, so please be sure to refer to the Instructor Guidance for this week further tips and information on locating scholarly, peer reviewed journals.
Part of research is tracking and maintaining all the articles and other sources needed for your research. RefWorks is a tool available to UAGC students to help them save and organize resources for current and future research. Additionally, you can save your article notes (i.e., the information you included in the template used for the Week 2 discussion) using RefWorks. Review the RefWorks Notetaking and Peer-Sharing Guide Links to an external site.for more information. If this is your first time using RefWorks, review the following resources:
Using the ECE660 Week 2 Action Research Proposal Literature Evaluation Template Download ECE660 Week 2 Action Research Proposal Literature Evaluation Template, similar to the one you used in the discussion this week, complete the below requirements. Keep in mind, in your final action research proposal, you will convert the information your added to the tables in the template into paragraph form.
Part 1: Article Summary Tables
For each of the two articles, complete one table with the following information below. Each section must be complete and add relevant information related to the article.
Part 2: Literature Evaluation Table
Complete the summary table after completing each of the article summary tables. The purpose of this table is for you to synthesize information from the articles you reviewed to determine how each one will inform your own action research proposal, specifically focusing in the interventions and qualitative and quantitative instruments.
Part 3: Relevance, Terms and Application
Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA Style as outlined in the Writing Center. See the APA: Formatting Your References List Links to an external site.resource in the Writing Center for specifications.
